It’s Kevin Bacon all over again..
Those who know me, know things often come to me in a “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” sort of fashion. I’m (apparently) a round-about kind of soul. I saw this post (loved it instantly due to spider, someone mentioned it to me again after writing this.. due to spider) earlier in the day floating around. I fleetingly thought of a similar conversation I had not too long ago about my white one and my brown.. how I had really wanted raven in my shiny new. You don’t always get what you want or expect or even what you relate to. Think you are a gangly flamingo type? Feeling all dark and twisty werewolf? Yep, here comes the pink unicorn.. well, you know what I mean. You get what is needed. You get your knowledge bringer, your challenger, your lesson teacher.. you get what is needed. Sometimes they are always yours, sometimes they weave in and out, sometimes they are quickly passing through.
So, what about this opossum/possum love? Well, that brings me to the fiery one.. who asked me the said question.. later that day after I saw the floater.. what about opossum? I see their death everywhere, but all I ever hear about are these birds and frogs (btw.. she wanted owl but she gets all the cutsies & chatteries and mostly hates birds). I don’t walk that path (said she) but don’t they need our help? Are they just not “cool” or something? Where is all the opossum love? To her, I said that I have stopped on occasion. Although they don’t call to me, I have eased one or two in my time.. never collected. Still, I kind of like them.. who says they’re not “cool”? I mean, they’re all snarly and hissy.. I’m all snarly and hissy.. what’s not to love? Maybe they don’t call me because we already have some common ground.. or maybe I am just unteachable where they are concerned.. we get what is needed. That said, my dear fiery one, why are the opossum on your mind so heavy? I’m just saying. Anyhoos, for you my dear.. we must not forget the opossum, those of us who walk this path. If you are one who feels their call, do not shy away (*cough, cough* fiery one *cough, cough*) if you find them not so attractive (ahem.. spiders). They have much to teach.. using your head, strategy, watching out for deceiving appearances.
